As if the cheese and beer weren't enough...

...now we're shotgun-toting rednecks in winter parkas?

I was looking up the date for The North Face Endurance Challenge and found this little gem of quality PR for the state of Wisconsin:

The North Face Endurance Challenge Midwest Regional now has a new date:

Date: Saturday, October 25th

This change was deemed necessary due to the state of Wisconsin announcement that shotgun antler-less deer hunting will be permitted on October 17, 18, and 19. For the safety of everyone involved with The North Face Endurance Challenge, a new date was set.

There's something about the term "shotgun antler-less deer hunting" that sounds so completely barbaric and backwoods that I'm slightly disgusted. Though I am well aware that hunting season is practically considered a holiday around here, it pains me to see it in writing.
